national elections. if you look back at 2012 and that moment in the campaign when the vice president at his debate , it was a key moment, and job i delivered to the ticket. -- joe biden deliver to the ticket. the president knew he would. that is why he asked them to be his running mate and why remember any doubt among anybody here that he would be the running mate in 2012. enjoyedthe president quality time with ill clinton -- with bill clinton? >> he does. >> the president made a comment -- >> i have not read the book. two, i am sure it is filled with a lot of great color and detail allt a campaign that like national campaigns is filled with ups and downs and turns and twists. i am sure it will be a great read. what i can tell you is the president is enormously grateful for the advice and assistance that he received from president clinton during the campaign and the council he has received throughout his presidency from one of his only living predecessors. that relationship has only strengthened ever since the president, then senator, ran for the nomination against president clinton's wife.
their insurance. >> go to new jersey. >> take us to jersey. >> a lot of elections. election day tomorrow across the country in new jersey where voters head to the polls, governor chris christie will win reelection. the latest quinnipiac poll has him up over two to one over barba barbara buono. christie and his supporters hope to show the republican party how to win an election. we caught up with governor cristy on the campaign trail over the weekend and asked him what will likely be his victory speech on tuesday. >> sounds like you're planning for a message beyond new jersey. is that a fair assessment? >> i'm not planning for it. i think it's inevitable. people look at elections and they try to discern about what they mean at that moment and what they mean for the future. i think that what people will see is so unusual for what our party has created in the last couple of years that invariably people will draw from us. >> is the margin necessary to lay a future for your career? >> i don't think so. barack obama won the state by 17 points a year ago. the fact that you're talking to a republican a
getting involved with government and campaign. in the end, the people you work for, the people you elect, they're the people with the future in their hands, you know? they're our leaders. >> what are rules with the restrictions going to the homes. how much video do you have on each fellow? >> i'll take it separately. i guess the restrictions are quite straightforward. anything that we film, we can use in the film. but if anyone was uncomfortable at any time, they can tell us to go away. tell us to stop filming. and i would always listen to those requests. i mean, that's how i always work. i mean, it's really difficult if you give characters and participants in your films control later. and they have control while it's happening. >> and how much time did you spend around each one. >> people think we spent three years with them. five to 15 shoots. shoots could be a couple of hours to a few days but we didn't film as much as you might think, hopefully, seeing the film. and in all, probably have 200 and 300 hours. 200 and 300 hours. i don't really film a lot by standards of documentary maker
kind of message we are sending as parents, as lawmakers, as elected officials, even as grandparents and aunts and uncles. what kind of message are we sending if our kids, because remember these are our kids in our communities, don't feel safe. don't feel safe simply walking to the store to get candy and a drink. so, i just wanted to come here to talk to you for a moment to let you know how important it is that we amend the "stand your ground" law because it did not -- certainly did not work in my case. the person that shot and killed my son is walking the streets today and this law does not work we need to seriously take a look at this law. we need to seriously speak with the state attorney's office, the police departments, more attorneys. we need to do something about this law when our kids cannot feel safe in their own community. thank you. >> ms. fulton we are sorry for your loss and thank you for your courage in coming today. as well as to trayvon's father, thank you very much for being here. our next witness is a clinical professor of law at harvard law school where he serves a
. and one of the most important expressions of that will be elections next year. i encouraged that iraq pass an election law and that that moves forward so that people understand that when they have differences they can express them politically, as opposed to through violence. [speaker translates] i also appreciated the efforts that prime minister maliki has made recently to restore stronger relationships with its neighbors, including kuwait and turkey and some of the other gulf states, and expressed my interest in providing whatever support is necessary to make sure that iraq is working cooperatively and effectively with its neighbors. [speaker translates] >> we spent considerable amount of time talking about syria, where the spillover effects of the chaos and assad's horrific treatment of his own people has had spillover effects in iraq as well. [speaker translates] >> and we agreed that it's in the interest of both countries to try to bring about a political settlement, a political transition, inside of syria that allows the syrian people to make decisions about their own lives, while, a
starting to come down to the wire now. and in fact, many analysts say that tuesday's election could indicate how the nationwide elections are going to go next year. >> delia goncalves is in our satellite center with more on this part of the story. good morning. >> reporter: good morning andrea, mike, all eyes are on virginia and time is winding down. the election just four days away. and a whole lot of campaigning over the weekend to try to sway those last-minute undecided voters. if you take a look at the polls lots of them vary by degrees and margins, however. most show that cuccinelli is gaining momentum. terry mcauliffe though still holding on to a pretty strong lead. mcauliffe is trying for a second time to lead the state. the democrat is running against former state senator and attorney general ken cuccinelli. some say mcauliffe is short on specifics but according to the virginia public access project the democrat has raised more than $35 million. that's nearly double cuccinelli's total. but ken couch nell low is hoping to realdy -- cuccinelli is hoping to rally conservatives

for the next year and in early 2005 the iraqi people were holding their first elections and we had removed saddam hussein from power and they were having their first elections to vote on the constitution. later in the year they actually elected their first leader and first president and there is a lot of change and turmoil and a lot of unrest, people didn't know what to expect from the future and we were right there in the middle of it. my job and actually i was in task force in baghdad and i was the public affairs nco for the third infantry division, which meant that i worked with the media and sent out press releases and i answered calls from good folks like you and "the new york times" and i was the typical army spokesperson lives there. so i was hoping to tell the army's story to folks back here. the kind of information that the media was looking for was of course to confirm any information about a big incident that went down, if there was an ied or a roadside bomb that went off. if there were casualties, they would like to know how many and who is skilled and things like that. also th
this is happening are you in the midst of an election for a new mayor. how do these proceedings play into election that's the interesting side part they are going to allow lech a new mayor an both say they should not be in bankruptcy. both should not say there should not be an emergency manager running, one candidate says if january if he takes office will go to the governor with his own restructuring plan and ask to be put in place and for them to remove the emergency manager. so you have different political situation that is brewing over on this side and it's going to be very interesting to see how a new mayor works with the governor and the emergency manager because the old one right now says he feels that he's been pushed aside-- aside and has no part in what is going on. >> brown: explain that for all of us on the outside because it is confusion. so when a new mayor comes in, will he or she have the power to-- derail the bankruptcy but can do what? >> he doesn't have the power to derail the bankruptcy but he says he wants to-- either one of them said they want to have more input in the proces
but by democrats who voted for this thing, because they don't want to be stuck out there next year in an election year having to explain a website that still doesn't work. >> let's go back to the hearing. this is the chairman, the republican from michigan, checking her. >> i don't have that metric with me but i'll check on it. >> i believe those are numbers that cms has put out. the associated press reported in early september that there was a memo prepared for the assistant -- by the assistant secretary for planning and health. are you aware of that press story and that memo? i think it went through your office to secretary sebelius? >> it went through the enrollment numbers? >> yes. and it said that there were month-to-month predictions of enrollment numbers showing a path to the seven million that i mentioned. >> right. >> could you make that memo available to the committee? >> certainly. >> according to the press report, the memo estimated that 494,620 people would sign up for health insurance under the program by october 31st. we're obviously very near that date. have you met that estimate?
i suspect by the white house as they were navigating through an election at that point in time. and that was a political call they made and they're now making -- now having to deal with the consequence of that. >> that's a pretty serious blunder. if it's done for political reasons when this is the signature achievement of president obama, health care for everyone in the united states, something that then girls in washington have been working on for decades, they finally get it passed and you're saying for political reasons because of an election they were delaying certain critically important elements leading up to the release of this plan, is that what you're saying? >> wolf, they will have to answer as to why those regulations weren't issued. but i think it's clear they had three years to do it. there was a period of time when nothing happened, at least nothing publicly happened. and those regulations -- decisions were made not to issue them and i think at the very root of this problem is the fact that they were very late in issuing the regulations that the contractors needed
are gone. my successor and elected insurance republican commissioner sandy kraeger and i worked on a whole series of plans to expand coverage. i did work on these issues and we were not necessary -- >> you say these were lousy plans and miss tavenner said no true insurance. do you think the plans weren't true insurance? >> in the individual market, the insurance commissioner in kansas and virtually every place in the country -- >> it's a yes -- >> it's a yes or no question. were they true insurance plans? >> a lot of them are not true insurance plans, no. >> i yield back. >> gentleman from vermont. >> i'm going to summarize what i've been hearing. number one, the website must be fixed. you've been very forthright and you're going to fix it. number two, we've had a real battle about health care, had a battle in this congress. it was passed and the president signed it and the supreme court affirmed it, a brutal battle. there was an election people where the american people affirmed it and then the shut down in the threat of deabt default. all of us represent people who are going to win or lo
to four years. spent raisingis money for the next election. they're not able to focus on the job that they were elected to come here to do. host: you say you are an old senate staffer. on your twitter page, you talked about the last time divided chambers came up with a budget agreement. can you talk about the history of that? guest: yes. let me try to explain it very carefully. createdet act that was in 1974 set up the process. there was a budget committee in the senate. they created the congressional budget office. that has been in effect for 30 and almost 40 years. every year we pass a budget and go to conference and agree to it. the last time there was no agreement was when we had a divided congress and the house was under democratic control and the senate was under republican control. the last time we had an agreement with a divided congress was 19 86. here's a picture. what are we seeing? guest: you are seeing the chairman of the senate budget committee. the senate was under control of republicans at that time. he was the chairman of the senate budget committee. andsee mysel
they are. >> meanwhile democrats running for re-election are upset and nervous about this as rightly they should be. they held a closed door meeting. they are concerned that this goes beyond just the web site problems. but there are real structural issues with obama care. and they are having to go back to our district and answer for this and probably won't win the election. >> it's pretty simple. you have to have a a lot of healthy people who don't need healthcare, sign up and pay into the system in order to support the sick people who do need it or else it collapses. and that is not happening. >> one of the things that a lot of folks aren't talking about sort of get buries a little bit we are talking about individuals. obviously we all talk bower healthcare but talking to hospitals under the microscope that may lose their support. their tax exempt status including the big hospital up in boston that's where, what is it, the patriots, new england patriots get their rehab done. >> that's right. it may lose its tax exempt status. sort of under the microscope under obama care. >> unbefor
in the people's house. whose members are closest to the elect rat, with two-year -- electorate, two-year terms, rather than the senate whose members sit unchallenged for six-year terms and who do not proportionally represent the american population and who already enjoy their own unique and separate senate powers intentionally divided by the pramers -- framers between the two chambers. if we as members of the house of representatives, who took a solemn oath to support and defend the constitution, including its origination clause, fail to assert this right and this responsibility as immediate representatives of the people, and those most accountable to them, mr. speaker, we dishonor the founders' memory and we fundamentally abrogate our sworn oath to support and defend the constitution of the united states from all enemies, oreign and domestic. mr. speaker, this fall the u.s. circuit court of appeals for the district of columbia circuit will hear an appeal in the case of sisle v.h.h.s. as to whether or not obamacare violates the origination clause of the constitution. i would urge my colleagues
a presidential election going on. but lots of evidence of it. we see visible signs, and a lot of discussion about it, and a lot of confidence that is going to happen. clique schedule for when? april? when?it is scheduled for is hopeful that they will be able to dissuade from dealing. >> what does karzai do after that? establish a presidential library of jalalabad? littleas a very modest apartment for himself, 10,000 or 20,000 square foot or so, and i think he will stick around. >> do you think we will have a genuine transition? how many candidates? >> 11? 10? >> you would think my staff would help me on this. 10? thank you, bill. >> what do you think happens post-karzai? obviously -- >> i am obviously more optimistic i just see evidence of progress it if we can maintain and work out a bilateral agreement for us and our allies that allows us to have a small but effect his -- they don't like the taliban and they like their army. they have no confidence in the government in terms of being corruption free or anywhere near it. the lack of services remained there. the afghan people have great confidenc
. it is the thing that certainly did make a comeback to kimberly in an election year. that is the kind of thing you summer as we approached them midterms in 2014. chris in alabama talks about the legislative date left in his home state. they have only so many days that they're going to be here. the bar has been raised since they got here. we have a budget conference any one of those moving this year would be huge. as the days pass by, there's less time to get anything done on these things. if anyone of those three things advances by the end of this year that is a huge win. host: here's james from chattanooga, republican line. caller: i'm from tennessee and i'd like to know if it would lower the egos that some of these people in congress if they could just sit down and do a small appropriations bill. that is what i would like to know. i am not sure it would affect egos. or aan appropriations bill basic bill they are supposed to pass every year. thehey thaw some of tensions that have been brewing. if they could accomplish something together, i think you would start to see people maybe trusting each o
it in some way, and most of those democrats are up for re-election in 2014. they're getting nervous. the american people are saying, wait a second, where are we? am i going to lose my coverage? am i -- are my premiums going to go up? what's happening here? and so that's the key. the pressure on the white house is not going to come from republicans, that's already out there. the key is going to be how many democrats say we've got to the change this law. bill: ed, thanks for that. we'll talk to you later, and as you mentioned, sebelius tomorrow. the news of the day is on this program called cms. martha: and ed's point is well taken. this is going to be a huge 2014 election issue, and that is one of the reasons that you see so much emphasis from both sides on this. kathy mcmorris rodgers as the gop makes their feelings known, john boehner spoke moments ago. we're going to tell you exactly what he had to say about this, and the hearing on the left-hand side of your screen will get heated, no doubt, when the questioning starts to unfold here. will the thread on the suit, as ed talked abo
. they couldn't do any changes on it once scott brown won his election and the threshold dropped below 60. they have been unwilling to negotiation and they're not suffering, the country is suffering and it's not ending well. >> do you think that it was deceit on their part or they just didn't appreciate the realities of the market place? that if you promise a lot and want to cover a lot you shouldn't by surprised if the premiums go up a lot or if you have to switch out of a policy you'll pay much more than a lot. >> i'm convinced this is a white house that has been used to things being true because they say they're true, and it just doesn't work out like that. so think about the similar situation with the stimulus, and all of the promises about economic growth that were going to come, and of course, that didn't happen. and now the white house says, you can actually lower these premiums by enhancing this coverage, and it's all economic nonsense, and so now it's coming fruition, and this is the same group that a couple of weeks ago declared overwhelmingly clearly that, it's ready for octobe
